Industrial product photography is a very exact science, we undertook a shoot for WDA Machine Knives who had boxes full of products they wanted us to photograph. The products they had for us were all shiny, which can present challenging lighting, but we are highly experienced in creating the perfect lighting setup using professional techniques. So we knew the lighting setup from the start.
A little trick that we like to use for some metallic products is coating them with a small amount of baby oil. This makes them shine as though they have been polished and looks much more impressive and clean in the final images.
We set every product out on a table to get an idea of the how they looked and their sizes. In the interest of time, the similarly sized products would all be shot around the same time. This was so we didn’t have to zoom in and out constantly due to having to frame different sized products.
Product images on a white background are also extremely versatile in terms of marketing and websites. They can be used through social media to show off the product as well as on a website as a product listing. They will be the go-to image that are shown to anyone with an interest in the product being shown.
